OUR TOP 10 BLACK SERIES FIGURES IN 2018

12/11/2018 The Black Series Hasbro

We've taken a close look at every single Star Wars Black Series 6" figure released in 2018, we took pictures of every figure from every angle, we wrote down what we liked about each one and what we didn't like, we discussed every database entry with you, our readers, and we talked about most of them on our Toy Run podcast. So here are our favorite TOP 10 Black Series Star Wars figures from 2018!

10) Rio Durant

Rio Durant was released just recently but he has become one of our favorite Black Series figures in 2018. Hasbro gave the figure four movable arms, four elbows and four wrists, but most importantly the figure has the correct height and just looks like the character in the movie. It has a working holster, comes with two blasters and removable goggles. It's an overall well executed figure and the Ardennian compliments Beckett's crew perfectly!

It Is With Great Sadness That We Say Good-Bye To Steve Evans!

11/29/2018 Steve Evans Hasbro

Steve Evans, Design Director at Hasbro for Star Wars toys, announced on several social media accounts today that he is moving on from his position to take on a new role at Hasbro as Creative Director for Consumer Products. 

It's with great sadness that we see Steve Evans leave. He was accessible, open-minded and truly listened to the fans. His deep knowledge of Star Wars and enthusiasm shined through in every panel, interview and presentation and within the past five years he's become the face of Star Wars at Hasbro. We want to thank him for bringing The Vintage Collection back and for inventing the HasLab initiative which made Jabba's Sail Barge possible. The HasLab project in particular was a huge accomplishment by him and his team as it gives us fans the opportunity to get Star Wars toys which otherwise would never get made. 

Most of all though we want to thank Steve for opening a channel of communication which gave us direct access to ask questions. When we interviewed Steve on our podcast TOY RUN back during the Summer of 2016, and asked how a Star Wars figure was being made, he would walk us through the process. He understood that we were genuinely interested in this, and it was later followed up with several videos and behind-the-scenes information during panel presentations (a trend which continues to this day) to keep us informed. 

To communicate more with fans he brought the Fans Choice poll back (for 6" and 3.75"), there were several Instagram Q&A's, there was the Vintage Collection Conversation on HasbroPulse, we did a few Google Hangouts with Steve and members of the Star Wars team, and of course there were a lot of panels with Q&A's and interviews throughout the past five years. 

Steve Evans introduced us to people working behind-the-scenes like Tom Rego (sculpting manager) and Mark Boudreaux (senior principal designer/legend) in the designer desk video series, which was interesting for us fans to see. Having Steve Evans place Mark Boudreaux in the foreground on several occassions and educating Star Wars collectors about his 40 year long contributions to Star Wars toys was also much appreciated. 

The contact to fan sites was great and we felt that we made an impact with our answers and questions. JediBusiness.com's readers had been asking for the return of playsets, and we receiced the fantastic BB-8 playset last year, followed up with the awesome old-school heavy-cardboard Kessel Mine Escape and Mission On Vandor-1 playsets. He knew we didn't like the yellow banana visors on TFA figures, so he got rid of that. We wanted creatures to come back in the 3.75" line and he brought them back with the Rathtar/Wampa sets. We don't like NERF? Got it, let's get rid of NERF! We wanted the Vintage Collection? We got it. We ran an article about the Vintage Collection bubbles being too wide and that the artwork needs to be made bigger, and sure enough, it was confirmed that there will be changes made going forward. 

Knowing that Steve Evans grew up like many of us with Kenner Star Wars toys in the 70's and 80's brought authenticity with it. He was a collector himself and even dealt with Star Wars figures in the 90's to pay some bills. Once we sent him a message at 1:30am asking to clarify the differences between the regular Black Series 6" Captain Rex figure and the Hascon version, his answer came back from his private account at 4am. Now that's dedication.  Whoever follows next has big shoes to fill and we hope that Steve Evans' successor will maintain the excellent communication with the fan base. We also hope that his successor will not only bring a love for Star Wars with her or him, but also a deep appreciation for the Kenner Star Wars toy line from the 70's and 80's, which in our point of view is the foundation everything is built on. 

THANK YOU, CONGRATULATIONS AND GOOD LUCK STEVE EVANS!

The Vintage Collection Schedule UPDATE!

11/1/2018 The Vintage Collection Hasbro

Here is a complete look at Hasbro's The Vintage Collection schedule all the way up to Fall 2019. There are six figures which still need to be revealed and we will likely see them at New York Toy Fair 2019. The future looks bright for fans of Kenner packaging and super articulated action figures, check it out:

Officially Announced Figures

January 2019

Star Wars Vintage Collection

February 2019

  • VC000 Yak Face (and the Sail Barge) (the figure is identical to the basic VC132 Saelt Marae figure but on a Kenner-style Power Of The Force card with a collector coin. This was the very first HasLab project in 2017 and no, it will not be made available again to fans in the United States and Canada. There will however be a small number of Sail Barges made available to customers outside of the United States and Canada, but no specific information has been released yet)

All The Info For Today's Black Series 6" And Vintage Collection Reveals!

10/31/2018 The Black Series The Vintage Collection Hasbro

We've received the press release from Hasbro including press images. Now we know that the Black Series 6" Mace Windu figure will be available in Spring 2019 in the main line. The Vintage Collection Poe Dameron figure will be released in the main line during Fall 2019. 

Mace Windu is an all new figure and the figure's likeness is based on Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, have a look at the comparison images below. Even though the Vintage Collection 3 3/4" Poe Dameron figure is a re-release of the 3 3/4" Black Series figure, it will be updated with the new face printing technology. This release feels boring because the Walmart exclusive 3 3/4" Black Series figure has been peg warming for a long time but keep in mind that the Vintage Collection is just as much about the packaging as it is about the figure.

More Info About The Vintage Collection R2-D2!

10/28/2018 The Vintage Collection Hasbro A New Hope

Steve Evans, Design Director for Star Wars at Hasbro, revealed on his Instagram account that the just announced R2-D2 for the 3 3/4" Vintage Collection next year will be released on a classic ANH card. 

We did some digging and it looks as if the R2-D2 figure itself will be a re-release of the Entertainment Earth exclusive Force Link 2.0 R2-D2 figure which is packed-in with C-3PO. You can get the set here: R2-D2 & C-3PO at Entertainment Earth. For more images of R2-D2 take a look at the database entry or scroll further down.

Here Is Everything We Know About The Black Series 2019!

10/27/2018 The Black Series Hasbro

Here is a look at everything that we know thus far for The Black Series 6" line for 2019. We predict that we'll see most of the figures before the Summer is over, because Disney/Lucasfilm and Hasbro will certainly gear up for Star Wars: Episode IX in the Fall with figures based on the new Star Wars movie.

Let's take a look at what has been revealed so far. 

Black Series XL

Hasbro announced during New York Comic Con 2018 that a new format will join The Black Series family called Black Series XL. This gives us fans the opportunity to get figures in the Black Series which are bigger and taller. This is similar to the Gamorrean Guard and Moloch figures which are currently exclusively available at Target stores. With the bigger format however comes a bigger price, which will be $29.99. We don't know yet if those figures will be numbered.

The very first figure which we can look forward to is the fan-favorite General Grievous from Star Wars: Revenge Of The Sith. The figure will come with a premium soft-goods cape which has pockets on the inside for all the lightsaber hilts. General Grievous will have two arms which can be extended out into a four arm battle stance and Hasbro will include four lightsabers and one droid blaster. The figure will be out in Spring 2019.

Black Series General Grievous

The Vintage Collection Chewbacca On A Classic Card!

10/27/2018 The Vintage Collection Hasbro A New Hope

Steve Evan's confirmed through his Instagram account that the Chewbacca figure for The Vintage Collection 2019 will be a re-release and that it will be released with the first issued classic image on the card. As you all know, the Vintage Collection is just as much about the classic packaging as it is about the figures, and since Chewbacca hasn't been released in TVC yet, this is a welcome addition (the VOTC version from 2004 used the Return Of The Jedi logo). 

The figure itself looks to be a re-release of the Black Series 3 3/4" Chewbacca figure from 2015.

So we can expect something similar to what was seen below. Picture credit to Chris Fawcett's 12back.com.

Star Wars The Black Series Archive Collection On StarWars.com!

10/24/2018 Hasbro The Black Series The Black Series Archive

Today the official Star Wars Show on YouTube featured a brief look at Hasbro's up-coming Star Wars Black Series Archive Collection, and the official Star Wars website published an article to go with it. If you've been reading JediBusiness.com, then you are familiar with almost everything mentioned in the article except for how many figures in total we'll see in the Black Series Archive line in 2019. Steve Evans, Design Director at Hasbro for Star Wars, had this to say: 

Of the more than 160 Black Series figures already released or announced, Evans says the Archive line will be limited to a select few, with just seven being released in 2019. “We want to make sure that we only bring back the figures that are really wanted, really needed and will benefit from this,” he says.

Hereby Steve Evans confirmed to StarWars.com that we'll see a total of seven Black Series 6" figures released in the Black Series Archive line in 2019. This means we already know everything coming in the Black Series Archive series for all of 2019. The links will take you to the official press images:

Do We Need Sub-lines In The Black Series?

10/20/2018 Hasbro The Black Series

We are five years into Hasbro's The Black Series 6" line and are very happy with the quality and the constant improvements made to the figures. We've seen the photo real face printing technology being added and we've just recently seen the first figures with an improved neck, which allows for a wider range of head movement. The quality of the figures is fantastic, they look great on display and the line is a ton of fun to collect. 

Currently The Black Series is a mix of characters from all Star Wars entertainment without a dedicated sub-line to place an exclusive focus on current Star Wars media. Hasbro is trying to make everybody happy across the board by covering as much ground as possible by mixing in current media into the basic Black Series assortment. By doing that however, many of the side or even main characters (in different outfits) will not get produced or take a long time to make it onto collector's shelves. 

So we are asking, do we need dedicated sub-lines for CURRENT Star Wars media?

Let's take a look at what Hasbro has released and what we still would love to see from recent movies:

Amazon has listed the single carded Force Link Emperor Palpatine 3 3/4" figure on their website.

Hasbro Star Wars Figure Reveal & Details ROUND-UP! Check it out!

I am writing this here sitting at the airport waiting to board my plane back to Seattle, if I miss anything feel free to leave a comment below and I'll update the list. So, here it goes:

The Vintage Collection 3 3/4"

  • The Vintage Collection Gamorrean Guard will be re-released, the front of the card will be the same as before but the back will be different because of legal reasons, no changes to the figure however

  • Hasbro showed a new Sail Barge behind the scenes video of the packaging photo shoot, they re-created the Sarlacc pit with poseable tentacles, Mark Beaudraux himself made sure that the correct windows on the Sail Barge would be open and in the correct position
  • The final The Vintage Collection Sail Barge packaging will be revealed in an up-coming International convention before the year is over
  • The Vintage Collection Klaatu was given a wash on the outfit which looks great

  • The Black Series Tripple Zero will include extra murder hands
  • The Black Series Doctor Aphra is a new interpretation and not an up-scaled version of the Vintage Collection figure

Here Are All The Detail About The Star Wars Resistance Action Figure Line!

10/5/2018 Hasbro Star Wars: Resistance NYCC2018

Cnet.com introduced Hasbro's Star Wars: Resistance 3 3/4" action figure line yesterday, which was followed by an in-room presentation of the action figure line during a press only event during New York Comic Con 2018. The action figures on display included ten figures, six Star Wars figures which will be released single carded and four figures which will be released in two 2-packs. The single carded figures included Kazuda Xiono, Commander Pyre, Torra Doza, Synara San, Major Vonreg and a regular First Order Stormtrooper. The 2-packs will include Poe Dameron with BB-8 and Jarek Yeager with his droid. 

The Star Wars: Resistance toy line was referred to by Hasbro as their "kiddie line" and that means less articulation (5POA). The figures are more colorful, brighter and the overall look is stylized to match the Star Wars: Resistance tv show, which is heavily influenced by anime. The toy line will come in its own packaging and will be available in Spring 2019. There were no vehicles announced, but the show is based around races, so we should see some vehicles in this toy line in the future. 

You can listen to the audio of the announcement during the press event below. 

 

Star Wars Resistance premieres this Sunday at 10 p.m. ET/PT on the Disney Channel. We'll update this article with press photos and photos from the event in the near future, please stay tuned.

Hasbro Will Give Us A Rare Behind-The-Scenes Look At The Imperial Assault Tank!

10/4/2018 The Vintage Collection Hasbro NYCC2018

We found out this morning during Hasbro's media event that this Sunday, during Hasbro's New York Comic 2018 panel, Hasbro will give us a rare behind-the-scenes look at the creation of The Vintage Collection Imperial Assault Tank! There are details hidden in the vehicle which you won't notice unless you take it apart, and of course we don't want to do that! Expect to go beyond the cup holder! We are looking forward to this and of course we'll report back here on J.B. about it, so stay tuned!

Hasbro's Media Event Was Cool! Check Out The Photo Gallery Of New Figures!

10/4/2018 Hasbro The Black Series Star Wars Resistance

Hasbro invited select media outlets to a Hotel in Manhattan this morning to present new Star Wars toys. The presentation included Star Wars lightsaber fx products, new The Black Series 6" action figures, Star Wars Resistance 3 3/4" figures and never-before-seen packaged versions of some The Vintage Collection action figures. Here is what we have learned: 

The Black Series 6" General Grievous figure will be released exclusively at Target stores in Spring 2019 for $29.99 in a new Black Series XL line. His arms come apart so that he can be displayed with all four arms stretched out. The back of the soft-goods robe didn't have the skull emblem on it, but this might change by the time it's released (they weren't sure if it's not on the cape because it was a prototype fabric).

The Black Series 6" General Kenobi in his Tartakovsky Clone Wars outfit will be released exclusively at Walgreens stores during Spring 2019.

Hasbro's Black Series 6" archive series will include a re-release of Anakin Skywalker from Episode 3, but this time with the new face printing technology. And just like the first release it will also include a second head sculpt. Yoda will also be re-released and it's the first creature in the Black Series 6" line to feature face printing technology (the very first creature to feature face print tech by the way is the Jabba The Hutt figure which comes with the Sail Barge, but that of course goes with 3 3/4" figures). The third figure shown was the Biker Scout, which is a straight re-release of the Biker Scout with Speeder Bike

Hasbro also had Jabba's Sail Barge on display and pictures don't do it justice, it looks amazing in person. Expect more videos from Hasbro about its creation leading up to its release in February. They also revealed Princess Leia (in Boushh Disguise) on its card, together with Klaatu, Yakface and the Rogue One Scarif Stormtrooper. Klaatu looks outstanding on the card, especially because there is no warning on the front which gives the artwork more room to breath. 

The Vintage Collection Gamorrean Guard will be re-released next year, the packaging and numbering will be identical to the previous release.

A big surprise was the reveal of Star Wars Resistance action figures in the 3 3/4" line which will be available in Spring 2019. It's going to be its on dedicated line with its own packaging. No vehicles were shown.

We'd like to say thank you to Hasbro for inviting us to the event and stay tuned for more coverage from New York Comic Con this weekend! Now make sure to check out the photo gallery (we'll be updating it over the coming days).

The German/European Noris Force Con Exclusive Revealed?

8/28/2018 The Black Series Hasbro The Empire Strikes Back

Chinese online retailer Robotkingdom is currently taking pre-orders for a brand new Hasbro Black Series 6" multipack. The set includes Princess Leia Organa (Hoth Outfit) and Han Solo (Echo Base Gear). Princess Leia appears to be a re-release of the basic, and still up-coming, single boxed Black Series Princess Leia figure while Han Solo looks to be new.

Even though Hasbro has released a Han Solo (Hoth Outfit) figure before in the Black Series line together with a TaunTaun, this new version has a new head (it may utilizes the new face printing technology), different jacket, different paint application and it has a scarf and fur around the collar.

This set is likely the European/German Noris Force Con exclusive set which was hinted at by the organizers of the convention early in the Summer. Hasbro mentioned that there will be an exclusive European convention set as well, and that it will make it's way to the United States eventually. Unfortunately we don't have any other details to share at this time.

European The Vintage Collection Packaging! Doctor Aphra Is Coming To Germany!

7/31/2018 Noris Force Con The Vintage Collection Hasbro

The organizers of the Noris Force Con in Germany have announced that there will be three Hasbro convention exclusives available at their event. So far two of the three have been announced while the third exclusive is going to be announced in the near future. 

The first exclusive is the Doctor Aphra Comic Set 3-Pack which was available at San Diego Comic Con in the United States. This time however the packaging will look quite different with several different languages on the front of the box. The figures will be the same however, a price has not been announced yet. 

The second exclusive will be the Han Solo Exogorth Escape set, which was also previously available at San Diego Comic Con in the United States. The packaging looks identical but the back will likely be updated in multiple different languages. A price has not been announced yet. 

Exclusives will only be sold at the show and will not be available online afterwards. Even though those figures are exclusive to the convention in Germany, there is a good chance that they will be available at other conventions in Europe over the coming months. Hasbro will have two representatives at the show holding a panel and a Q&A with attendees about their Star Wars toy line. Noris Force Con will be held from September 21 - 23rd 2018 in Fürth, Germany. You can follow Noris Force Con on Facebook for more information.

So, What Did We Learn From Hasbro's San Diego Comic Con Presentation?

7/21/2018 Hasbro San Diego Comic Con The Vintage Collection

Here is a rundown of what we have learned from Hasbro's San Diego Comic Con 2018 panel, plus images sent to us by Toy Run listener (a weekly podcast which we produce) Rob Paladino (thanks Rob!) and links to official press releases sent to us by Hasbro, and a closer look at Hasbro's fantastic San Diego Comic Con exclusives this year. 

So, what did we learn from the Hasbro presentation?

X-Wing Fighter pilot C'ai Threnalli, who could be seen in Star Wars: The Last Jedi sitting next to Poe Dameron, was supposed to be released in the final wave of The Last Jedi action figures. Unfortunately the entire wave was cancelled in the United States and for a long time it looked as if the figure would never be released here. Luckily Entertainment Earth managed to secure the exclusive rights to sell the figure in the United States and just a few weeks ago it finally shipped out. If you'd like to learn more about the figure take a look at our usual database entry. If you want to get the figure, Entertainement Earth has it still in stock

A First Look At The Official Hasbro Display Stands For Black Series 6" Figures!

5/21/2018 The Black Series Hasbro

Fans of Hasbro's The Black Series 6" line have been asking for display stands for quite some time and we are happy to report that the wait is over. We don't know how Hasbro will distribute those display stands yet, but we are hopeful that future single packed figures will include them and maybe they will make them available in bulk, so people with larger collections can pick them up easier. 

The display stand is 4 1/2" long, 2" deep and 0.5" high and it has two pegs, one on each side. It's long enough to give figures in dynamic poses room and stability. The middle piece, which says Star Wars on it, can be flipped around. This then turns the stand into a floor panel which looks cool. Multiple display stands can be hooked into each other on one side, so you can have an entire row of figures stand next to each other.

READ ABOUT OUR FORCE LINK 2.0 EXPERIENCE

4/29/2018 Force Link 2.0 Hasbro

After going through the painful 1+ hour Force Link 2.0 app update and several connection issues between the gauntlet and the app on an iPhone 7 Plus (with a great WiFi connection), we finally got the app to work. We've updated every Star Wars figure in the Solo: A Star Wars Story / Force Link 2.0 toy line with voice samples. Here is what we have learned and experienced: 

  • The Force Link 2.0 Wampa, Rathtar, Bala-Tik, BB-8 and BB-9e don't work yet with the app
  • Lando Calrissian is a great example of how cool this concept could be if implemented correctly (check out the db entry and listen to the voice samples, they are awesome!)
  • K-2SO only features three different lines (typically we can get five or six different lines out of a figure)
  • Qui-Gon Jinn's voice is not Liam Neeson (it sounds bad), and just like with K-2SO, we were only able to get three different phrases out of the figure
  • For Darth Maul they didn't use his Phantom Menace lines or voice either, it might be from The Clone Wars or Rebels
  • Rose (First Order Disguise) is unique, her voice samples are a mix of previous voice samples from other Rose figures
  • Luke Skywalker (Hoth Outfit) features only voice samples which are either from Dagobah or Bespin (this makes absolutely no sense)
  • Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master) has new voice samples and is unique from the Last Jedi Force Link 1.0 figure
  • The Kessel Guard doesn't speak, fighting sounds only
  • Characters which we don't know much about yet sound good, Han, Qi'Ra, the Range Trooper, the Stormtrooper (Mimban), Enfys Nest ... all good stuff
  • The Force Link 2.0 wrist band works on older The Last Jedi figures, but the old Force Link wrist band which came with Kylo Ren (or the one with the Praetorian Guard/Stormtrooper Executioner - TRU exclusive) doesn't work on the Force Link 2.0 figures
  • The app feature to unlock new voice samples by linking new figures through the app doesn't work
  • Keeping track of figures through the app by tapping the "star" in the picture doesn't do anything, the figure counter doesn't go up
  • We've noticed several issues with other languages, when switching to German for example, the layout breaks on some pages because the headings are too long
  • You are supposed to be able to toggle between Force Link 1.0 and 2.0 figures in the app, in the German localization it says toggle between Force Link 2.0 and 2.1

So far we don't see the magic between Force Link 1.0 and 2.0 except that you can update it through Bluetooth. The app is still not ready for prime time yet. When was the last time you've spent $30+ for an item you thought you could use right away, then had to wait about two weeks, then installed the app on your phone (which took one hour) and then still didn't work 100%? The figures still have five or six different lines (in some cases apparently less), so the functionality is the same when compared to Force Link 1.0 and we didn't notice any changes in voice quality or an increase in phrases per figure. Force Link 2.0 has a lot of potential and we love how cool it is when it works well (Lando!), but we have to scratch our head when we have a Luke Skywalker in Hoth Outfit who only speaks lines from different scenes in the movie. Let's keep our fingers crossed and hope for a quick and frustration free update to the app in the coming days and a more thoughtful approach as to what lines the figures should speak (and having original voices from the movies should really be a given).

 Share your experience below, we'd love to hear about it!

HasbroPulse Answers Sail Barge Questions!

3/19/2018 Hasbro HasbroLab.com Sail Barge

Hasbro has answered some fan questions on Instagram on their HasbroPulse account. Here is the summary: 

Q: Why is there a 5-piece maxiumum limit to purchase?

A: The 5-piece limit is per-transaction. Note, that there is no limit on the number of transactions you can make. 

Q: Is there any assembly required?

A: The main hull will come fully assembled. A few components require assembly including the sails, cannons, fins & additional pars based on the provided instructions.

Q: Why do we need 5,000 backers?

A: Because this item is the largest HASBRO Star Wars item ever created & the ultimate dream item for the inspired Star Wars fan, this is the absolute minimum quantity needed to cover the various operating elements needed to bring this massive & ambitious product to life.

Q: What do I do if my credit card or Paypal payment was returned? 

A: Nothing! This is most likely the credit authorization expiring as part of a normal credit payment cycle. Your preferred payment method will only be charged if we reach the minimum number of backers by April 3rd, 2018. If you have any questions, please contact us at 1-800-408-0052.

Q: Is the product design final? 

A: What you've seen so far is just the in-progress designs, but it is close to final in terms of the actual structure. The final item will be fully painted & will also include highly detailed accessories. We've been hard at work to make sure no detail is missed in the development of this intricate item & are excited to share more with you soon!

Q: Will HasLab products be available in stores in the U.S. and Canada afater the minimum 5,000 backers is met? 

A: No. Jabba's Sail Barge will only be available through the HasLab program in the U.S. and Canada.

Q: Is shipping included in the $499 + tax price for both the U.S. and Canada?

A: Yes

Q: How big is the packaging & how much does it weigh? 

A: Box size: 14"D x 50"W x 15"H, shipping carton: 15"D x 51"W x 16"H, weight: 15lbs

Q: Why HasLab? Why can't Hasbro just make this and sell at retail? 

A: HasLab is a completely new way of engaging the fan community that gives Hasbro an opportunity to potentially bring extravagantly awesome dream toys to life. Because of the size of the item & quantities involved, it is not suited to Hasbro's standard retail distribution model.

Painted Vs. Photo Real - A Comparison

3/19/2018 Photo Real The Black Series Hasbro

We've just had the opportunity to compare the Black Series 6" 40th Anniversary Death Squad Commander figure to the single boxed regular release. Both figures have different heads, the first one was painted, the new one features Hasbro's photo real technology where the paint is printed onto the figure. 

The new Death Squad Commander looks phenomenal in person, the eye doesn't catch the pixely print, the camera however does. As you can see, by printing the paint onto the figure it's possible to include more colors instead of just a single brush stroke (look at the eye brows). Below are some comparion pictures of both figures, have a look!

Post Your Questions For Hasbro!

7/8/2017 Hasbro San Diego Comic Con SDCC

JediBusiness.com will sit down with members of the Hasbro Star Wars brand team during San Diego Comic Con 2017 and ask them your questions about their Star Wars action figure toy lines. 

A couple of things: 

Getting the chance to interview Hasbro team members is a privilege, not a right. Hasbro is a big company which had sales topping 5 billion last year, and the company has been around for 94 years. We pass the privilege to interview team members to you, the fan. We are your voice directly to the people who make Star Wars action figures. When you post questions please be civil and friendly. 

- Please don't ask about distribution (we have been asking about distribution several times per year since 2011, and whatever their business model is for distributing the way they do, it's just what it is at this point)

- Jedi Master Luke Skywalker from TFA has been confirmed to JediBusiness.com by Steve Evans in our interview on Toy Run - Episode 16, so that figure is coming in the 6" and 3.75" scales

- Don't ask about PlaySkool figures and toys, that's a different department (and we don't cover that line on J.B.)

- We can't guarantee that all questions will be asked (there is a time limit for the interview)

- We will release a transcript of the interview after the convention, and the audio will be made available on Toy Run - The Star Wars Action Figure Cast

- We will collect questions through Friday, July 14th 2017

New Variations In Hasbro's 6" 40th Anniversary Collection

6/20/2017 Hasbro The Black Series Variations

J.B. reader Wayne Eggert has shared some images with us of variations he's found in figures from Hasbro's 6" 40th Anniversary Collection. 

From Wayne:

I thought I would share the variations in the new sandpeople figures. In addition to the color difference on the heads, the pouches on the dark head version are painted a flat reddish brown while the pouches on the other are unpainted glossy light brown. The dark head seems to have been produced over many waves and the lighter head on possibly the last lot only. I've seen several of each, but all the light heads have been from the same lot (70961) where there are a wide range of lots on the dark head.

Similarly, the flat reddish brown pouches have been only on the Sand People with dark heads while the light brown have been exclusive to the lighter head version. This could be because of a mixed production since all the pictures I've seen of the main run Black Series Raider have all had light heads. If it goes back to dark heads in a later run, this could wind up being the rarest 40th anniversary figure.

There is a rumor floating around in the collecting community which indicates that Hasbro might bring back an updated version of the Episode I CommTech chip for The Last Jedi toy line. The rumor, which appeared to have originated on Rebelscum.com, indicates that each Star Wars figure in The Last Jedi basic assortment will include a Force Link Bracelet which enables the figures to talk to each other. 

If this rumor turns out to be true, it'll be interesting to see how much the technology has improved since 1999. We expect more information about this to come out during San Diego Comic Con 2017, which is held in July. The Last Jedi action figures go officially on sale on September 1, 2017.

Most Expensive Black Series 6" Figures On The Aftermarket!

5/26/2017 The Black Series Hasbro

Let's take a look at Hasbro's The Black Series 6" figures on the secondary market. Most Black Series 6" figures can be had for regular retail price even years after their release, but there are some figures which have increased in value gradually.

Currently the top spot goes to the Boba Fett/Han Solo in Carbonite 2-pack which was a San Diego Comic Con exclusive in 2013. The demand for some of those figures is pretty amazing, even bootleg versions seem to be making quite a bit of money on the secondary market (Darth Maul!).

Many of the figures listed below have doubled in value, if not more, check it out:

1) Boba Fett / Han Solo in Carbonite

2) Luke Skywalker (X-Wing Pilot), 1st release and 40th Anniversary Collection

3) Anakin Skywalker

4) Darth Maul

5) Imperial Shadow Squadron 2-pack

6) Bossk

7) R2-D2 (first release and 40th Anniversary Collection)

8) Yoda

9) IG-88

10) Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight)

How Much Are You Willing To Pay?

5/8/2017 Hasbro The Vintage Collection 2

Hasbro's 3.75" The Vintage Collection will be back one year from now, right before the new Han Solo movie will be released in movie theaters. We know that The Vintage Collection will be available at all regular retailers, but we don't know yet if Hasbro will treat it as a main or subline. Will it replace the 5POA or the VS. 2-Packs? Will the Han Solo movie have its own dedicated toy line or will it flow into The Vintage Collection? For how long will those figures come back? Will distribution improve compared to the disastrous 2011 - 2013 time period (remember, those figures were tough to find)? What about vehicles?

It's time for a rant! You all love rants, don't you?

It's not everyday that you come across an article on a major publication such as Forbes.com, where the author criticizes Hasbro and their approach to the Star Wars action figure line. The article, which headline reads "Hasbro Looks To Win Collectors Back", is filled with assumptions and no data to back it up. It's astounding to read such harsh criticism of Hasbro and how they've been treating the Star Wars action figure line. Here are some of excerpts:

How To Get The Star Wars Celebration Excl. Luke Skywalker!

4/10/2017 Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017 Hasbro

ReedPop has released information about how to get the exclusive Hasbro 40th Anniversary Collection 6" Luke Skywalker (X-Wing Pilot) figure, and it isn't pretty. In order to purchase a Hasbro Exclusive on Thursday and Friday, a limited number of tickets will be given out.

There will be a special morning queue for those who want to receive a Hasbro Exclusive ticket in the morning. Please look for Queue 10 and the sign that says “Tickets to Purchase items from HasbroToyshop”.

Tickets for the Hasbro Exclusive will begin to be given out at approximately 6:00 AM on Thursday and Friday. After receiving a ticket for the Hasbro Exclusive, fans can join the regular Celebration Experience Exhibition Hall Chutes.

You cannot get into the Hasbro line to purchase anything at their booth without a ticket on Thursday or Friday, regardless if what you’re purchasing is the Hasbro Exclusive or not. On Thursday and Friday the only fans that can shop in the Hasbro booth are those with tickets.

On Saturday and Sunday, tickets will not be required to shop at the Hasbro booth.

Not sure why Hasbro thought this is a fair way to distribute those figures, especially with two major panels happening on Thursday and Friday morning with thousands of people expected to camp out over night. 

Also, what else will Hasbro offer for sale? Maybe the first wave of 6" 40th Anniversary Collection figures? Will we see wave 4 of 3.75" Rogue One figures? Stay tuned to JediBusiness.com for updates!

A Hasbro Subscription Box? Would You Be In?

3/24/2017 Hasbro JediBusiness.com

Let's play "What if?"

Fans and collectors of Hasbro's 3.75" action figure line wish Hasbro would return to the times between 2005 and 2012 when almost every 3.75" Star Wars action figure released was well articulated. Not only were those Star Wars figures nicely detailed, but Hasbro also released a lot of background droids and obscure alien characters (and even included diorama pieces with some figures!) which helped SW figure collectors to round out displays and dioramas.

With Hasbro's focus on a new Star Wars movie every year, and the focus of the main 3.75" action figure line on kids, there is little room to satisfy the demand of long-time and older Star Wars action figure collectors. Currently the only retailer to offer super articulated 3.75" Star Wars figures by Hasbro is Walmart, which has about 16 different figures per year with roughly half of them being re-releases of older figures.

What The Force Awakens Action Figures Hasbro Could Still Make

2/10/2016 The Force Awakens Hasbro

When I first saw The Force Awakens, I was struck by how little there was in the way of costume changes for the main characters. There also didn't seem to be many background characters.

After I saw the movie twice, I started composing a list in my head of what figures Hasbro could make for the 3 3/4" line. At first I thought there were about 25-35 figures that could be made. With not all that many figures already released, and comparing this to the output we had with the last major film release, Revenge of the Sith, it seemed very small.
